Description

The iconic ‘Snoopy’ cap

Rare Communication Carrier Assembly cap, commonly known as the 'Snoopy' cap, manufactured by ILC in 1992 during the Space Shuttle era, with faded label on one side, "Comm. Carrier Assembly, S/N 0101-10001…Date 9/92…ILC Dover." This unit contains microphones for left and right ears and feature their original Pacific Plantronics, Inc. part labels. In very good condition, with expected signs of moderately heavy use; this item was likely used for testing support and scrapped out after being used. These caps were used to secure the ear-cups and microphones the astronauts used for communications, and the design was largely unchanged from the 'Snoopy' cap made famous during the Apollo era.
